"Speed is of Laing's essence. He has 'gone off slow films'. He likes to work rapidly and to get quick results. His preference is the thriller. Dangerous Orphans is all these things. A character based action movie, it was shot in six weeks in and around Wellington" - (Carol Cromie, "Movie- maker must stay on the move", New Zealand Times, August 10, 1986)
